Food Service Information

Hawthorn District 73 provides breakfast and lunch through our food service provider, Arbor Food Service.  

As you may be aware, the USDA waivers allowing all students to receive their meals at no charge expired June 30, 2022.  As a result, meals will once again be charged at the rate of $3.10 for lunch and $1.35 for breakfast, with reduced price meals charged at $.40.  

We encourage our families to complete an application for meal benefits if you are having financial difficulties and are not receiving other assistance such as SNAP, TANF or MedicAid benefitsPlease use the LunchApplication to apply for free/reduced price meals for the USDA’s National School Lunch & School Breakfast programs. The application is reviewed and verified in order to qualify. 

Applications will be available after July 1st each year and all information is kept confidential.  You may apply at any time during the school year if the need arises.
